07:40 AM ET 01.03 | Texas' search is heating up, and UCLA coach Jim Mora has become part of the mix. The University of Texas has expressed strong interest in [Mora] as a possible replacement for Mack Brown, and the two sides have had conversations, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Mora previously coached in the NFL, most recently as head coach in Seattle and Atlanta. He is 18-8 at UCLA. Monday night's Valero Alamo Bowl was Brown's final game at Texas after 16 years. He's resigning after a rocky final season in which Texas lost at least four games for the fourth consecutive year. New Texas athletic director Steve Patterson said last week he expects a successor to Brown will be found within two weeks. Patterson said before kickoff at the Alamo Bowl that he believes Texas needs a new coach by Jan. 15.

He's a moderately big name and somewhat flavor of the month. He's close enough.
